Summer Photo Competition

I want to have some fun on social media this summer and am running a family summer photo competition!

Spend the summer getting creative with your family photography. Upload you best holiday photograph showing personality and fun showing the crazy things kids do! The sillier and more bonkers the better, I want to see what antics kids get up to this summer. If you are unhappy with uploading family snaps then include your pets!

Everyone gets to vote and there is a chance to win a £20 Argos gift voucher, a free family digital studio shoot at Firetree with £50 credit to spend on artwork.

Everyone is welcome to get involved in the fun!


Winning Prize: Digital Studio Session.

The winning family of this completion gets to sample my new digital studio experience for free, I am even including £50 credit to put towards products after the shoot.  For the last 9 years I have been taking children down to the bluebell woods for seasonal family portraits. There is nothing quite like a good run around a wood with a family! I run the shoot at the end of April for one or two days and the sessions are always fully booked.

Many parents are frustrated that they can’t make the date, and although it has not happened often, the shoots can get rescheduled or cancelled because of the weather.

This year, while I was at the wood, I photographed a great many backgrounds and shots of the bluebells in order to create a digital studio and a virtual bluebell wood. This means I can re-create the beautiful background of the wood at any time of the year in the digital studio.

Although there are no real bluebells on the shoot, the sessions are great fun and the children are encouraged to imagine the wood that surrounds them!
